| p.1 #12 · Anyone else getting a Leica M and suggested vendor outside of NY? |
I've thought about the A99... but that SLT mirror still just bothers the hell out of me.
I think at this point in the hobby for me, I'm ready to try out Leica and see where that takes me. I've tried Canon, Panasonic, Sony, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, Minolta, Konica, etc. All the camera companies.
Part of the fun for me besides the images is the tool itself. If I had to to compare it to something, it's like being a chef who really enjoys a good chef's knife.
Oh, I hear you. I'm just saying $8200 is a lot to spend on a single camera and lens, when you could get your feet wet with a used M8 or M9 to see if the rangefinder thing makes sense to you.
You could, of course, remove the mirror of the A99 and only use Leica R lenses on it, which would give you a similar concept for much cheaper, since size isn't an issue.
Just trying to help you by playing devil's advocate a bit.
